The reviews just keep on coming today! Thanks to Youtube reviewer PrimeVsPrime, we get a nice look at the upcoming Generations Selects Rotorstorm figure! A remold and recolor of the Siege Spinister figure, Rotorstorm is a Selects figure which is only the second Rotorstorm toy released- his first was as part of the G1 line, but was only released in Europe. His only major role in fiction so far was as one of the Wreckers in the 2005-2018 IDW continuity.

PrimeVsPrime gives us a thorough look at Rotostorm's redeco and new, comic accurate head, as well as some nice comparison shots with Spinister.



Rotorstorm has already begun shipping from Hasbro Pulse, though other online retailers may not have their stock in just yet. Let us know if you'll be picking up this figure, as well as what you think of the review, and keep your optics tuned to Seibertron!

I think it is because primevsprime's video is the first one that the news staff got directly.

I had Rotorstorm for the last couple months and asked if y’all needed in-hand pics or a video review and was told y’all were good... :???:

I’m not mad or anything, I’m just.... confused?

It's funny because exactly one one prior to that review, Baltmatrix reviewed the figure, I'm surprised no one picked up on it.

Their webpage listing for Hot House still says "Coming in November 2020" but my order page shows him as processing. An email alert would have been nice as I only noticed by checking my bank account. They also charged me the full shipping cost even though they are only shipping one of the two figures on pre-order.

BBTS says the same. But remember, Rotorstorm was slated for November and we already have him, so maybe Hothouse will be moving up similarly. Yeah, won't get my hopes up.

Im honestly not fond of things coming in early because it messes with my budget. It sucks when something comes in when you arnt ready to pay for it.

Exactly. I use budgeting software and have all my pre-orders listed for the first day of whatever month they are expected to ship unless Pulse has a specific release date. Rotorstorm and Hot House are both two months early, and Super Megatron is listed on Hasbro Pulse as the 26th. I'll make sandwiches for lunch at work instead of going out to eat to make up for the unexpected expense lol.

You’re telling me; it was all fun and games until my preorders for both Scorponok and Sky Lynx came in at the EXACT TIME. It was a rough time because of that. :(

I've been having that problem with Amazon for a month or so now. Things are delayed then all of a sudden they're charging my card. Just happened yesterday with Kingpin from the Spiderman Animated wave, wasn't supposed to come until next month. Meanwhile I don't even have an estimate for Smokescreen.

I've rarely had issues like this, my most common problem with online pre-orders is I have pre-ordereds get delayed, and then things that were a couple months apart end up coming in stock at the same time. It's annoying.

I'd sort of forgotten Super Megatron is due out in a week and a half, I'm looking forward to that figure.

So here's my sort-of-dilemma: I held out on ordering the Seacons, thinking they'd be offered in a whole set eventually. When God Neptune was announced, I figured that was it; there probably wouldn't be a giftset of the original-deco figures. I started looking for them on the secondary market, and found that Turtler and Overbite are in huge supply, but the rest aren't. My question is: what are the odds that these guys will be re-stocked by retailers? So far, my only avenue of getting the other four Seacons is to pay nearly twice their initial price, and/or buy them in a lot that includes one or both of the ones I already bought.

Thank,
Glarryg

I think you've missed the boat. Takara already made a second run of them back when they offered all six as a bundle on their website following the first individual releases, and that bundle was only exclusive to TakaraTomy Mall.

Also, for clarity's sake, said bundle was not a boxed set but just the six individual releases sold as one purchase. And with this being Selects, even the God Neptune giftset is likely to just come in another cardboard box w/ a black slipcover rather than any fancy Unite Warriors-esque packaging.

I think you've missed out. If you want the whole set, be prepared to spend $700 for it

Lurk Mandarake. They generally go for under $300 (I think?) all together, or you can pick them up piecemeal. Not dirt cheap but considerably cheaper than eBay scalpers.

Well, Entertainment Earth finally sent me a shipping notification only three days after charging me lol but hey, early Hot House. Oh, I also woke up to a charge for the Centurion drone and weapon pack. Thankfully, I snagged my preorder when they still had him for $19.99. Kinda looking forward to the Energon cubes with small 5mm post, no idea why they didn't do that with the Netflix spoiler cubes :BANG_HEAD:

I got charged by Pulse this morning, too. I also found out you have to preorder stuff early, because I can't get the new 12.99 Darth Vader figure - it's sold out. :(
